Children’s Book Provides Inspiration for Children to be More Active

Dr. J. Renae Norton is a clinical psychologist, published author and Director of the Norton Center for Eating Disorders in Hyde Park, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. For the past 10 years she has noticed a connection between the epidemic of childhood obesity, eating disorders, and the increasing complications of both in her clinical work as well as in her research.

Recently, Dr. Norton completed the first two books in a series of children’s books on lifestyle issues designed to help parents protect their children from the dynamics that would otherwise rob them of their health and well-being. The books delight readers from 3 to 10, because the adorable pups, Maji (rhymes with magpie) and Mongo (rhymes with bongo) make being healthy an exciting and fun-filled adventure. The first book in the series is entitled “How Maji Gets Mongo Off the Couch.” The second book is entitled Let’s Eat! How Maji Teaches Mongo What It Means to Eat Clean!

Fitness is an important part of the problem, but it is not the only issue. The other important piece of the problem is the nature of the food that our children eat. Unfortunately, the U.S. food industry targets children’s foods for additives that damage weight regulatory systems. The next Maji & Mongo book, “Let’s Eat!” addresses this issue in an endearing and encouraging way, as Maji introduces Mongo to foods from the ground, not from a bag. Maji also helps Mongo discover the amazing power of Water, Water H2O! in the next book in the Maji and Mongo series. The remaining Maji & Mongo books cover Green Living, Eating Disorders, and Diversity in the same appealing and engaging way.

Dr. Norton is on a mission to shed light on these problems, particularly as they relate to prevention for U.S. children, who currently hold the dubious distinction of having the highest rate of obesity (tied with Scotland) among the world’s developed nations.

LET’S EAT: Maji Teaches Mongo What It Means to Eat Clean!

LET'S EAT!: Maji Teaches Mongo What It Means to Eat Clean!

LET’S EAT: Maji Teaches Mongo What it Means to Eat Clean, the second book in the Maji & Mongo series, is set to release on March 15, but you can pre-order it now at amazon.com!

“Maji and Mongo were dogs of the same breed but they were very different, very different indeed! One a sad couch potato, the other a happy playful tornado!

When they met, Mongo ate chips and dips, cookies and candy. He didn’t even know how great water could taste! But Maji shows him that food from the ground is the best all around and that being healthy and strong can come in handy. Don’t miss the fun these two pups have together! Join them and make up your mind to eat clean forever!”

The Maji and Mongo books are lifestyle picture books for 3 to 7 year olds that address the issue of outdoor play and clean eating in a way that makes it sound like irresistible fun. They use a rhyming format that children love. The illustrations of Maji and Mongo are adorable and quickly capture the attention and the hearts of children. The books also contain valuable tips for parents who want to help their children be more active and enjoy more wholesome foods.

LET’S EAT addresses the importance of drinking water (versus soda), how it gives one energy and vitality. It presents guidelines on how to eat healthy in a fun way, i.e., eating clean, eating organic so you don’t have scrambled-up brains, eating foods that came from the ground versus from a bag, avoiding GMOs, pesticides, chemicals, and junk food in general.

“What my research was showing me was that the American food supply is polluted and that many of those suffering from disordered eating, actually suffer from food addictions that are the result of these pollutants. I found an abundance of data available on the role that food additives play in damaging the biological systems that regulate weight. Specifically, the American food supply is polluted by:

        • Antibiotics
        • Artificial growth hormones
        • High fructose corn syrup
        • Artificial dyes (made from coal tar and petrochemicals)
        • Artificial sweeteners derived from chemicals
        • Synthetically created chemical pesticide and fertilizers
        • Genetically engineered proteins and ingredients
        • Sewage sludge
        • Irradiation

These substances have been shown to be carcinogenic, neurotoxic, obesogenic and addictive, especially for children, whose brains are still developing. As a result, the U.S. is among the top ten fastest countries in the world with the distinction of being number one for having the fattest children. The impact on the health of our nation has already been catastrophic and will get much worse if we do not do something to protect our children. Indeed, U.S. children today will be the first generation in decades to have a shorter life expectancy than that of their parents. The Maji & Mongo book series is an attempt at fighting back, by engaging children and their parents in an entertaining and endearing read that puts across the importance of getting outdoors and eating clean.”

Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Interview is Now Available

Livin' La Vida Low-Carb

My interview with Jimmy Moore of Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb is now available for streaming online. Jimmy and I discuss the epidemic of childhood obesity, food addiction, disordered eating and a few other interesting topics. You can listen to the interview HERE.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb podcast, here’s a little background info about the host, Jimmy Moore!

“In January 2004, Jimmy Moore made a decision to get rid of the weight that was literally killing him. At 32 years of age and 410 pounds, the time had come for a radical change of lifestyle. A year later, he had shed 180 pounds, shrunk his waist by 20 inches, and dropped his shirt size from 5XL to XL. After his dramatic weight loss, Jimmy was inundated with requests from friends, neighbors and complete strangers seeking information and help. Jimmy is dedicated to helping as many people as possible find the information they need to make the kind of lifestyle change he has made”.

 The podcast will be available within the next few days through iTunes, so be sure to check it out HERE!
